I germinate mine in a mini greenhouse becuase it's warmer and helps to protect from late frosts.

Carole... I really like 'Heritage' but the flowers shatter too easily etc. So I bought 'Nahema'. 'Heritage' was its pollen parent (though it strikes me as unusual that 'Nahema', which is a climber, can be produced from two non-climbing parents scratch ) and its flowers are much more full, it holds its petals well, it has very nice perfume, and it sets open pollinated seeds easily (just like 'Heritage' does). I'm going to harvest these open pollinated seeds next week and see if they are any good, sow them to see how well they germinate and if they do well then I'll do some planned crosses with it and other roses, especially some of the species or Tea roses.

Simon I just wanted to see if the flowers looked like Heritage or not I don't mind either way in fact I would like to grow something different as this is my first attempt at growing from seed.

Thanks Simon for your answer. It was great and helped me alot.
So it doesn't matter I have had the seeds dry in a container for a bit ?
Thanks too for telling us one of Nahema's parent's is Heritage.

Putting seeds into dry storage can make the dormancy just that little bit deeper and it can take a little while longer to wake them out of it... and seeds left for long periods can also become non-viable... but 6 months should have little or no effect on them apart from making the stratification process a little longer maybe.
